Feast your eyes.
TOS actually did use jujutsu and karate occasionally. Pretty impressive for the time.

They even refrained from having their Japanese character practice kenjutsu or karate as a hobby. Sulu just did fencing.
Then the Kelvin timeline gave him a literally multi-folded katana. No mention on whether or not this is a standard-issue Federation weapon or a family heirloom, though :roll:

Give the Charlie a katana. We wouldn't want our character to have too much personality.

I wish I could remember the episode, but there was a TOS episode where Sulu was turned evil and he took a karate stance and did some sort of MA moves. (Edit: Did some research, I think the episode was Catspaw.)

Most notably, he judo flipped that guy that called him "tiny" in The Search For Spock.

But it's true he never used a katana.

Is that a different TOS episode from the one where he also turned evil and started harassing crewmates with an épée?

Sulu becomes infected with a mysterious space virus that lowers his inhibitions. Though to us, this virus sounds more like a trip to the local bar than a viral infection. Turns out, when Sulu becomes infected and his inhibitions are lowered, he reveals himself to be a "swashbuckler of the 19th century." After joyfully abandoning his post on the bridge, he gallivants shirtless through the Enterprise corridors wielding a sword.
I always knew that was a metaphor for gay sex.

I remember when this movie was new. I saw The Raid and then there was all this hype for The Raid 2. Can't remember when I watched it, but I was a little let down. The Raid 2 is more ambitious but less effective imo. They had to contrive new reasons for why people weren't using guns, and so opted for the usual excuses. AKA they're prisoners, they're undercover, they're too poor etc etc. The best part about The Raid, the part that I think works best, is the framing device with the single apartment complex and the cops gradually losing their weapons over time. Take that away and the resulting film is much closer to standard martial arts crime thrillers.

To put it simply, The Raid 2 is not better than Ong-Bak. It's not better than Oldboy. It's not better than Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance. I wouldn't say The Raid 2 was bad, but it feels much more conventional than the first movie. Much less fresh. Korea and China both have put out an absolute shit-ton of martial arts crime thrillers and this is just another one.



Gay-ass mma movies have some pretty sick fight scenes btw.

Star Trek is still better.
